    Need help in designing form using custom CSS codes again

    Asked by m1hunter on November 22, 2016 at 01:13 PM

    4. When I submit the form with the required fields not field out I get a red border around them I would     like to make this red  border thicker / wider.

    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input) {

        padding: 2px !important;

        border: 2px solid red !important;



    This worked but not on the drop down menus. Please help.

    I understand that you want to display the thick border to the dropdown menu also.

    Please replace the above CSS code injected to your JotForm with the following CSS code.

    .form-line-error input:not(#coupon-input), .form-line-error select {

        padding: 0px !important;

        border: 4px solid red !important;


    It should be displaying the dropdown error with thick border after replacing the CSS code.

    Hope this information helps!
